The Mysterious Monkeys may be about to upgrade their roster, if certain tweets are indicative of anything.
Leon "Lamabear" Krüger, former jungler for the Monkeys, has announced his free agency this morning over on Twitter. Meanwhile, both Maurice "Amazing" Stückenschneider and Mateusz "Kikis" Szkudlarek have made identical tweets of "Hyped for next week."
Alone, it wouldn't be enough to create a rumor. However, Berk "Gilius" Demir also took to Twitter this morning, stating that the Monkeys upgrading to Kikis and Amazing is beneficial for the roster.
MM upgrading to amazing and kikis is a really smart move for them— Berk (@GiliusLoL) June 18, 2017
Kikis and Amazing were both a part of Fnatic Academy earlier this year and helped the team qualify for the EU LCS. After Fnatic sold the spot to Ninjas in Pyjamas, the entirety of the roster was let go, which put both players back on the bench. It wouldn't be surprising at all if the two found a new home with the Mysterious Monkeys.
The Monkeys definitely need new blood. At 0-4 through three weeks of competition, the organization needs to make drastic changes now if they want a chance at playoffs. Removing Lamabear and Jin-cheol "Jisu " Park in favor of veteran players would certainly be a step in the right direction.
